Best game ever.  Even with it's "flaws". 
 
Dude, I remember replaying the starting level over and over again just to see how many ways I could beat it.  It was awesome.  
 
Edit:  Oh god, I have to reinstall this game right now.

My FIRST was just a glamarous, said "Ddkjfha skl" or some shit.

I could never get into Deus Ex. Shame. I was always told to just get the first mission done but couldn't even do that.

i loved the hell outta this game, fighting yakuza type dudes in Japan was one of my favourite moments in any game ever!

Posted by Jumbs

Now I want to play this again :(

Posted by PhatSeeJay

Still have to play that game again with the new HD texture pack. Looks pretty sweeeeet.

This. Got stuck on the stealth tutorial and said to myself "what the fuck is this shit!?" Shame.

Awesome! Reminds me I gotta finish my second play-through. This is very awesome.

i just stopped playing some Deus Ex just to watch other people play Deus Ex. :)

Posted by shadowwolf9

Yeah! We need more throwbacks!

Such a great game.

Like two weeks until Human Revolution, I want to sleep until my pre-order gets here.

And the lower the console FOV was how we did zoom binds for Quake 2

Brad is totally right. I played this game back in 01 and didn't get past the first area. For some reason I just couldn't get it. Wasn't feeling anything about the game. Then I started it again about 5 months ago and flew through it loving every second.

Posted by Pabba

Oh man, oh man...now I gotta replay this! Love augmenting.

Giantbomb, battling the summer drought by making quick looks of the classics. 
 
I love you guys.

Posted by MemphisSlim

Though a bit dated, all the mechanics this game tried to pull off still rivals, if not trumps a lot of modern games.
 
Also, that theme song is effing badass.

Posted by Dynamix

One of the most engaging gaming experiences I've ever had. Can't wait for the new one.

Shit yes. Goosebumps every time.

FUCK yes!

I think I've finally hit a game that I love too much to actually watch a Quick Look of it.

Posted by CharAznable

I never got around to trying Deus Ex, so I'm glad to see this quick look. Can't wait to check it out when I get home, I've heard awesome things about the game.

Posted by JayCee

I am ashamed to say that I've never played Deus Ex. 
The first step to recovery is admitting I have a problem, right?

Posted by Metal_Mills

I love QL throwbacks! :)

Posted by mracoon

Hell yes! Deus Ex is in my top five games of all time, probably more like top three. Such a great game.

I worked on this game. So many memories. 
 
Eidos thought it was gonna be a flop so they didn't market it as well as they could have. Luckily word of mouth did their job for them.

"Games have come a long way man."

Yeah, but they still never really surpassed Deus Ex.

Posted by stallion74

release date on PC was actually summer of 2000 and that was the same engine used in UT and Brothers in Arms among others

Posted by Dustpan

So when is the Invisible War quick look?

Posted by Ventilaator

Put on a trenchcoat
And fight some conspiracies
Get experience
And level up abilities
Will you pick rifles
or computers
Don't pick swimming
because it's fairly useless
 
Anyone else can't not automatically sing along with these lyrics whenever they hear the theme for this?

Posted by Dunchad

YES! We need more Throwbacks like this.

Posted by Vlaphor

I have tried this game several times, each time hoping to find the amazing game everyone else talks about so much. All I ever find is a shooting/stealth game that does a poor job of both. I'm even trying it again now, having reinstalled it a few days ago and loaded it up with hi-res texture packs. Beat Liberty Island and working on the second level right now, already getting bored/irritated with this game.

I thought that Deus Ex 2 was more fun than this game, simply due to the fact that the gunplay was more satisfying. I've already pre-ordered Deus Ex 3 (a brief deal on GreenMan Gaming made it $28), and I'm hoping it'll be better than the first two.

Posted by Garadon

Hey, Ion Storm also made Thief 3, that was a pretty damn good game.

Posted by Tennmuerti

FUCK YES.

Posted by BigStupidFace

Ahh cool, I've tried playing it twice and got bored but I like the idea of watching some Giantbomb peeps play it.

Posted by dropabombonit

Awesome game, love how Patrick done what I done when I played this game which was just through random objects at people

YEAH! This is why i am a subscriber.

Posted by KennyBhoy

This took me waaaaaaay back!

Posted by Tuggah

My cousin has played this game for the last 5 years. I've seen this first level probably thousands of times.

Posted by EverydayOdyssey

I never played Deus Ex but I am very interested in the new one coming out this month. Do you think it is worth playing it before the new one?
